What men should know about Low Sperm Motility?

Now a day, Male Infertility is getting more common these days among men because of changes in lifestyle. Male factor infertility is when an issue with the man’s biology makes him unable to impregnate a woman. It accounts for between 41 to 50 percent of infertility cases and affects around 7.5 percent of men.

The major reason for male infertility is Low sperm Motility which is when ‘sperm’ is not able to swim properly and barely make any progress once ejaculated in vagina. For the sperm to get through the cervical mucus to fertilize a woman’s egg, they need to have progressive motility of at least 25 micrometers a second.

Poor sperm motility or asthenozoospermia is diagnosed when less than 32 percent of the sperm are able to move efficiently.


Semen analysis is the most basic and useful test, and it can detect 9 out of 10 men with a fertility problem. The test assesses the formation of the sperm, as well as how they interact in the seminal fluid.

The sample is usually collected by masturbation. The man will be asked to abstain from sex for between 2 to 7 days before collecting the sample to increase the volume of semen.

It is necessary for the whole ejaculation is being collected in a sterile container to ensure the test results are complete.

The sample is usually collected in a private room at the doctor’s office or collection facility, though in some circumstances it can be produced at home. If this is the case, the sample will need to be delivered for analysis within an hour.
